The site of California’s oldest oak tree, this 2,600-acre ranch in the foothills of Cascade Mountains—set to be auctioned off with no reserve on September 25th—is home to a thriving agribusiness and vineyard, which produces about 2,000 to 2,500 cases of wine every season.
A number of buildings and venues sit on the sprawling property’s grounds, including a two-suite bed-and-breakfast; a custom-built Romanesque chapel; a 200-seat glass conservatory/event center; a Mediterranean-inspired pavilion for open-air ceremonies; seven individual on-site residences, including the owner’s main house; a 2,576-square-foot wine cave; and a dining hall, hay barn, and stables. The estate also boasts numerous waterfalls and sizable ponds (which generate hydroelectric power and produce an extra $60,000 in annual revenue), not to mention its own helipad and grassy airstrip.
